Your voice is adrift
I can't expect it to sing to me
As if I was the only one

I'll follow you
The leaf that's following the sun
When will my weight be too much for you?
When will these ideas really be my own?
Cause this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

This was a scene worth waking up for
When I woke up
You planted me in my own body
Don't know why
But somehow it just feels so wrong
When you're sad I will be lonely
But when you rise again I'll become the sun
I will shine down upon you
As if you were the only one

Your voice is your own, I can't protect it
You'll have to sing
A verse no one has ever known

Don't be afraid
Cause no one ever sings alone
Your way will never be too much for me
Your ideas have always been your own
And this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

    it not "When you're sad I will be lonely"
    the correct line off jack johnson site says
    "When you set I will be lonely"
    just like to say that...

    well i just lost someone very important to me.
    she was the best thing that ever happened to me, and i am lost without her.
    and when i listen to this song, its almost as if she is singing down to me
    and it is so real, and i get chills.

    i miss you Molly. R.I.P. i love you.
